I believe the blame is in many corners.
The assholes who treated him like shit are the trigger for this. People like jock's, who don't really know what cool is, but try to define it themselves, pick on some guy because he's different.
If this was a race problem, or a sexist problem, the news would be in uproar - but it isn't.
The thing is though, although people see it, it is still an ism... popularism.
I know what the guy's been through, i'm pretty much the outcast in my school, and i have a lot of trouble. The thing is, my school is that obsessed about sport and the likes, they just do not give a fucking damn. the people that do it the worst are obviously bringing all the trophies in, so they won't do anything... even though they know what's happening.
The people who do this don't even know that to be cool is not to be a fucking sheep and do what everyone else does... my mates, and I do have a lot, KNOW that just makes you the biggest loser.
It's cool to be you.
Unfortunately, all these assholes feel that because he's different, they should diss the guy. And after years of torment like that, even the most stable of people can snap... but I still bet the people who drove him to this, the jocks, the prom queens, the smokers, the 'I-had-a-threesome-at-12'ers, will never have 1 bad word said to them. When in all respect, they should have been kicked out long ago.
Maybe if the guy's problems (the people, that is) had been dealt with, the shooting wouldnt have happened.
And one guy, who probably had a much more promising life than those who tormented, even those he killed, will go to death row for certain because of it, because problem 2 needs a scapegoat to survive.
Problem 2 - The Media, the Companies, The Influences.
This is the greatest problem in the world. It influences, it insinuates, it mutates.
The media defines what is cool, what is right and wrong, when themselves are merely doing this for
Right... our new adidas things are $100? Very good... Now, we have to make sure people think these as cool, when in fact they are just low-quality overpriced shit. Who CARES about those who can't afford this?
See what this means?
Then, the media portrays everything that blame 1 does as cool, and it gives them an excuse to attack.
Some of you call the guy mental and all that... but you never see the trigger. And i don't mean the gun trigger either... i mean the underlying causes for this shooting. I don't feel those people deserved to die for their actions... but they did deserve to be punished, and therefore the guy took things into his own hands.
And you know what else? After this, and Columbine, the people picked on are going to be getting it even worse due to it...Due to those who cannot accept that people can be different... and due to the warping effects of the world media...
How long before the next shooting?
